Water in a metal cup will freeze faster because metal conducts coldness and energy the most. trust me, I did a project with a metal, plastic, glass, and paper to see which cup would freeze the quickest. Hopefully this answer helped.

No, hot water does not freeze faster since hot water has molecules that move around faster than frozen water. It would take a higher cooling point before it would freeze.

It depends what other liquids there are. If the other liquid is less dense, then the other liquid will freeze faster, otherwise, water would freeze faster.

i think regular water would freeze faster.

sciencefair.comSalt water freezes at a lower temperature. Therefore pure water would freeze faster.

Water will freeze faster than 7-up. This is due to the extra stuff in 7-up that isn't in water, such as sugars, syrups and caffeine.

Salt does not make water freeze slower. However, if it was ice, the salt would melt the ice.

Tap water would freeze faster but salt water would allow the waters freezing point to be lowered.

Salt water freezes at a lower temp than fresh, meaning colder. It may freeze faster when chilled enough be cause the salt would disrupt the plateo of the water so it may freeze faster.

Hot water lines are smaller thus in the winter they freeze faster

water because it only has one ingredient but soda has a lot of ingredient's

It depends. If they are the same temperature, then the thin liquid would freeze faster. If the thick liquid is hotter, then it will freeze faster.

Yes it freezes faster than apple juice.

That would depend upon the concentrations of these solutions, but yes, sugar is a less effective anti-freeze than salt is.

it depends on what the heck you are talking about......

Assuming they are the same or similar shape and volume, water in glass would freeze first, then plastic then foam. Foam allows transfer of heat out of water more slowly than plastic and the glass probably has the highest rate of heat radiation of the three.

haha i dunno :) If you throw salt on an icy road it melts the ice so therefore water with salt in it would freeze a lot slower than pure water,

Assuming you had equal amounts of each, the pure water would freeze first...Adding sugar or salt to water lowers its freezing point, meaning that more energy would be required to be removed from salt water and sugar water to freeze it

Tap water would freeze faster. That's the reason road crews apply salt to streets in the winter time. The salt water keeps the roads in a liquid state down to zero degrees Fahrenheit. Tap water is more like freezing rain. It freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fresh water is probably the likely candidate. If you add salt to a liquid, its freezing point lowers. Meaning, it would need a lower temperature for it to freeze.

Freezing rate depends on the surface area, the heat transfer medium, and its temperature. If it is a thin layer (large surface area) of water it would freeze faster than a thick layer (smaller surface area). A liquid heat transfer medium, like liquid nitrogen, would have a higher heat transfer rate than a gas, like air. Lastly, the colder the heat transfer medium, the faster the heat transfer rate, the faster the water would freeze.

Since solids have already gone through the freezing point, they would per say, freeze faster.
